§ SIR GEORGE BARTLEY (Islington, N.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for War whether his attention has been drawn to the condition of the ancient guns that are placed on the ground in the open air outside the Rotunda at Woolwich; whether he is aware that some of them have recently been stolen; and whether, seeing they are specimens of guns of considerable historic interest, he will cause a light shed to be built over them, so that while remaining open to the public they may be better protected and not injured by the weather.
§ MR. ARNOLD-FORSTER
Yes, Sir, my attention has been drawn to the condition of these guns and to the fact that some of them have been recently stolen. The question of providing protection for these guns is now being considered.
